So a couple of week’s ago was the ArtsGoggle in Fort Worth.  We set up early and had a pretty good time.

But.

There’s always a but.

The wind totally score boarded me.  Three to zero.

These.

And then, this was added to the pile.

October 8th and 9th is Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center.  I’ll have a table set up in artists alley, if you’re in the DFW area this weekend you really should make it an effort to attend the show.  Lots of celebrities for autographs, tons of cool vendors, some great artists, and quite a few killer comic book creators will be there.

This is one of the pieces that will be with me and my wife at our table.  Stop by and see us.  Look for the banner with the rather large orange 13 on it.

This piece measures approx 12.5″x35.5″ and is one solid porcelain tile.  It will be available for purchase and is one of a kind.  The pictures really don’t do the tile justice, it’s got a nice pattern on it.

I’ve added a bit of color to my previously posted hand printed linocut ceramic tiles.  Topped them off with a protective finish that really helps the colors pop off the tile.  So, here is a couple of quick pictures I took of a couple of them with the phone.

As always comments are welcome.  Don’t forget to check out the store for a limited selection of original pieces.

Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.

 

Over the weekend, I started working on a few hand printed linocut prints on tile.  A bit more paint and a nice layer of polyurethane will finish these up.

I’ll have these at FanDays on October 8th and 9th in Irving.
